Frequently Asked Questions
What if I can’t erase my phone?
That’s OK, we’ll accept them as-is. Big Sky Recycling ensures data destruction on all recycled cell phones. More about our data security policy can be found here.
Do you recycle more than cell phones?
Yes! We recycle all makes and models of cell phones, smartphones and iPhones. We also accept iPads, tablets and MP3 players.
Should I include the original box and manual?
No. These items can be recycled and/or disposed of with your regular curbside service.
Can I include chargers?
Yes. We will gladly recycle your cell phone charging cords.
Can I include the cell phone battery?
